various and assorted miscellany
That actually is a beautiful photo, in my opinion. Yesterday I saw a documentary about Banksy in New York - he did one work a day, put up a clue on the web, and people ran to see it before it was taken down, sometimes within a few hours. This is what he did on one of the days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mxJT2uXtrEReally interesting, all of it.
I saw something about that project, and I thought I'd probably never find any of them if it depended on me figuring out the clue. Wow lol, that video shows the plight of the artist in a nutshell, doesn't it! Even if you're famous you get no respect when you try to sell. I saw a couple I'd have bought even if I hadn't recognized the work :)
Found this morning; a must-read: http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/shortcuts/2015/sep/13/the-graffiti-grannies-of-lisbon
"legal walls" -now that'd be perfect! I'd be too scared of arrest to try it otherwise.
